WEARABLE ROBOT PREVENTING FALLS PARTICIPATES IN ROME “GARAGE DIGITALIA” SPONSORED BY ITALY’S FOREIGN PRESS ASSOCIATION, ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2017
The exoskeleton of the future is most certainly a smart wearable device that recognizes the loss of balance and prevents the elderly from falling, if you look at the research led by Sant’Anna School Biorobotics Institute and the current development of the wearable machines normally used to assist or enhance regular movement. The smart and light-weight exoskeleton will participate in the “Garage Digitalia” Rome event sponsored by the Italy’s Foreign Press Association at 6.30 pm on November 9th.
Simona Crea, a researcher at the Sant’Anna School Biorobotics Institute, will present the Active Pelvis Orthosis (APO), an exoskeleton worn from the waist down developed by researchers at Sant’Anna School - Pisa and EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale) – Lausanne.
